Holiday in Wales

Been away for a week in Wales and just got back last night!  Unfortunately, the weather was not brilliant but we made the most of it regardless.  Thought I'd post a few photos (and some scrapbook pages) of where we stayed... 

 The cottage we stayed in (above)

The farmhouse ajoining the cottage (above)

The kitchen below was my favourite room in the cottage

Some of the residents on the farm (above)

An early morning view from our cottage (above)
I am entering this particular scrapbook page into
where the theme is to include a 'metal' in your card / project
(here I have used 2 metal pins to give the impression of
clipping the photo frames onto the page)

Above is the beach at Mumbles with the outskirts of Swansea in the background.
This particular page was chosen as the 'Featured Scrapbook Page' on the
 Daisy Trail  (Sans Seriff) website on 01.09.10

More photos of Wales...

 The view outside... looking down the valley from the cottage (above)

This is the view we had each morning... it was beautiful (above)

The main house on the farm (above)

The kitchen (below) was full of 'oldy worldy' country charm
and was definitely my favourite room in the cottage

The sitting room (below) had a large mill wheel supported by
an overhead oak beam.  It gave the room character plus a glimpse into
what life was like in the cottage / barn before it was converted...

Meet some of the farm residents (below). 
Considering we were on a farm, it was very quiet at all times

The hens were not afraid to come close and would
often come to meet us when we were sitting outside... 

More photos HERE... hope you enjoy them :D
